Those who are extremely lean tend to have weaker immune systems,
making them prone to infections, surgical complications, and slower
recovery times for illness. They tend to have low muscle mass, and
less than ideal hair, teeth, and skin composition. They may have
disruptions in the ability to regulate hormones and protect bone
health, and women could become unable to menstruate.
There are many reasons why people may find it hard to gain weight.
Genetics can obviously play a role, but individual personalities and
the environment can be strong factors.
Some people are just more physically active, they tend to move around
burning more calories than they take in. In children, the inability
to gain weight may signal a condition
known as "failure to thrive," which means a kid is not growing
appropriately for his/her age. This may be caused by an illness, or
eating patterns dictated by a parental idiosyncrasy.
Being able to eat anything with abandon is also deceiving -- even the
skinny need to worry about having too much sugar and fat for good
health. Poor diets can lead to ailments such as heart disease,
If you want to put on weight, you should work out, to insure that you
put on muscle and not fat. Healthy weight gain, just like healthy
weight loss, takes time and
requires a conscious effort to apply good habits.
Recommended Ways to Gain Weight
Have meals with the right balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and the
right kinds of fat (such as unsaturated and monounsaturated fats,
olive oil, canola oil, pistachios, almonds and walnuts). Heinemann
suggests the following ratio: 60%-70% carbohydrates, 10%-15% protein,
and a small amount of fat.
Eat foods higher in calories, vitamins, and minerals, as opposed to
higher in fat or sugar.
Pack more nutritious calories in each serving. For example, you may
add grated cooked eggs to mashed potatoes, ground chicken to soups and
gravies, cheese in casseroles, eggs, and soups, and nonfat dried milk
in soups, shakes, milk, and mashed potatoes.
If you get too full too fast, try having more high-calorie foods or
slices of foods as opposed to consuming the whole thing (raisins
versus grapes, granola and Grape Nuts versus corn flakes, mango slices
versus the whole mango).
Limit drinking beverages to a half-hour before and after a meal.
Drink mixed juices (apple/berry, peach/orange/banana as opposed to
one juice beverages) for a higher calorie intake.
With moderation, you may add in good fat sources to meals such as
nuts, avocado, olives, and fatty fish (salmon and mackerel).
Snack in between meals. Nuts, dried fruits, and yogurt are good
options, but it's also important to find nutritious foods that you
Have a nutritious snack before bedtime, such as a peanut butter
go on a all salad and water diet. It surprisingly causes you to put on lots of weight because the hydrogen in water and the vitamins in the salad create a fat substance called hydroglopen (H2ViT7).
The is a very unkown method but it is very effective and easy.
switch from pouring your cereal straight from the box to using a measuring cup to cut your cereal calorie count in half
basicly, you need to eat more than 2500 calories a day, i suggest a weight gaining shake, eat every meal of the day no matter what, and yeah try and gain as much calories u can a day, its hard but works! good luck.
Originally Answered: Im trying to lose weight, so is weight lifting going to make me lose weight or gain weight?
Weight lifting will help you gain muscle and lose fat. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me.
Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why.
Make a few additional small changes - walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars.
Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can't get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one.
In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.
Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate - in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don't. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies.
Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day.
Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day.
Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body.
Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links.
